Sheffield City Council should give urgent consideration to building new schools instead of insisting on increasing numbers in already overburdened schools.
We know many of these increasing numbers are due to students being bused in from other areas of Sheffield.
There are large, now, undeveloped areas in the city, so why not utilise these areas by building one or two schools in places which are easier to reach for those children being ‘transported’.
Of course, the answer would be ‘there is no money thanks to Tory cuts’, but given the amount of money wasted over the years by the Labour council, that excuse doesn’t work for me any more.
Decades of mismanagement has resulted in Sheffield being a second-class city.
